Question about 1998 Nissan 200SX

1 Answer

The radio/cd/tape player, dome light and trunk light are out. I've check bulb and fuses, which are not the issue. It seems like a wiring issue? What else can I check? (I am a novice and need layman's terms) Thanks!

Check for a feed to the fuse first ,pull fuse and check both connections because i dont know which one is the feed offhand ,if you have no feed then use a long piece of wire from the pos battery terminal to each fuse connection in turn to see if it works ,if it works then loop a feed from one of the other fuses to this fuse by wrapping a piece of wire around the input side of the fuse leg and doing the same to the radio fuse .If the supply is ok the you have a earth problem with a earth connection but as the boot light and interior light have their earth to the bulb holder ??then i think its more of a supply problem like the printed circuit board in the fuse holder .

1999 Dodge Ram 1500 radio and inside dome light sre not working. Radio 15A fuse is good. What do I look for?


Hi Steve:
You may have 2 separate problems so I'd try to approach it that way. RADIO - On this older truck, it may be that there is a separate in-line fuse for the radio. If you can see under the dash where the wires come from the radio, look for a red or black one that has an in-line fuse holder. Push the ends inwards and twist counterclockwise, then pull apart to get at the fuse. It is also possible that the "accessory" terminal of the ignition switch is no longer working. A continuity meter should help you resolve that.
DOME LIGHT - Pull the bulb and test to make sure it's working. Check for power at the bulb connection receptacle (socket). Dome lights typically are switched from the doors or by rotating the light switch. If the bulb is good, it should be a hide and seek game to find where the power is, and where it isn't. The shorter the distance between these points, the closer you are to the problem.
Patience, and a sense of humour. You'll get it.

Where is the 2014 taurus trunk light fuse


It is the interior/dome light fuse. If you have dome lights, Then the trunk light should work. If it doesn't , then you will have to replace the bulb or start tracing the wires.

Trunk and dome lights not working


Hi Nail, It is very probable that the fuse protection are the same for all circuits you mention. It sounds as if you've created a short circuit, which is causing your problems. We need to go back to the beginning and begin again, carefully checking how the connections were made and then rectify the mistakes. Regards John

How do I get my electronics to work again?


I would also check the relays and the fuses in the engine drivers side I believe. Also the ones inside. Yes I do believe there is a fuse behind the stereo but when my battery died in my 04 durango it killed the cd player but the radio worked. I would check all the stuff you can to your ability. Does your stratus have a box next to the postive cable to the battery where it hooks on the terminal. You may need to replace that.

Interior light and radio not working


It's not a fuse, It is the internal wiring, the wiring from your dome light to your wiring harness is bad.. have you recently put in an aftermarket CD player?

Dome/ Trunk Lights don't work


The dome light problem is likely that the crappy switches that get pushed in when the door closes don't make contact when opened. You can find them at the lower right corner of the door sill. (Driver's side door. Same relative position on the other doors.) Take a phillips screwdriver and remove them, AFTER removing the correct fuse. Spray the inside of the switches with contact cleaner. Grab the black nub of the switch and twist it while holding the switch body still.

The trunk has a weird setup. the switch contact is where the trunk latch is. When the trunk is closed, the simple spring switch is held open so the light turns off. When trunk is open, the switch closes and the bulb lights. Hope this helps.

My 1992 GTS radio,flashers,trunk light,horn dont work and air bag light on


The horn and the flashers are controlled by the 15 amp HAZ-Horn fuse.
The trunk light is powered by the 20 amp Dome light.
The radio is powered by the above Dome fuse, and the 15 amp Radio & CIG fuse.
With a 12 volt testlight, check for power on BOTH sides of the above fuses. If you have no power to either side of the fuses, you have an open circuit under the hood that feeds said fuses: Look for an open circuit in the main fusible link coming right off of the battery positive terminal to the wiring harness.
